Ballmer hints at Blu-ray add-on for Xbox 360

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on October 22nd, 2009

PS3, Xbox 360 price drops coming this fall?Microsoft chief Steve Ballmer may have inadvertently tipped off some plans for an external Blu-ray drive for the Xbox 360. He’s doubtful that it will ever be built-in but he tells Gizmodo that an external Blu-ray drive will be an option. He doesn’t go into detail but is unexpectedly confident that the hardware is enroute.

Company spokespeople asked about it wouldn’t confirm or deny, but do say that immediate plans focus on 1080p streaming video through the upcoming Zune Video Marketplace on the Xbox.

Xbox 360 Wireless N Adapter coming November 3rd, $100

Xbox 360 Wireless N Adapter coming November 3rd, $100Good news and bad news. The good news is that the Xbox 360 Wireless N Adapter will be available on November 3rd. The bad news is that it will cost you $100 to get your Xbox 360 online using it.

Yep, looks like that $100 rumored price we heard about awhile back is right on target, according to GameStop. I don’t think they are going to sell very many at that price. Is this Microsoft trying to offset the recent price drop of the console itself?

Blue Blood Xbox 360 Controller looks pretty coolYou don’t see a blue Xbox 360 controller everyday, now do ya? And surprisingly, it looks pretty sweet in that color. For just $30 you can get this Blue Blood Xbox 360 controller kit from XCM, which includes a blue shell and D-pad with some glowing LED buttons.

It’s a beautiful thing in electric blue. If nothing else, it should impress your friends, who don’t have one. The only problem is that now it won’t match your Xbox 360′s color. Oh well, I think I could live with that.

Microsoft confirms 802.11n Xbox 360 adapterArstechnica has a mole. No, it’s not as bad as it sounds. It doesn’t chew up the house or dig in the yard or anything, or hang off Cindy Crawford’s face. It just hands them info now and again. According to that mole, the updated 802.11n wireless adapter will be $100.

The older G adapter will drop down to $80. Still pretty expensive when you compare it to regular Wi-Fi adapters, but whatever. The new adapter has the ability to stream 1080p video and is tied to Microsoft’s upcoming Zune video store update to Xbox Live later this year.

Microsoft confirms 802.11n Xbox 360 adapterMicrosoft has confirmed the 802.11n adapter for the Xbox 360. Which is great and all, but that’s about it. No mention of price or a launch date. The big M did say that the adapter will offer “another choice to consumers,” which probably means that the original adapter will be around for a while, probably for a cheaper price.

So it’s confirmed, but that’s about all we’ve got. We pretty much knew that already. We’ll let you know more when we know more.

Red and Black XBox 360 controller for your XBox 360 EliteThis black and red X-Box 360 Controller reminds us of Thrustmaster’s Ferrari controllers, without all of the logos. If your X-Box 360 could use a little flair, why not get this bold controller.

It’s an official release from Microsoft and will be available on October 15th. This would go well with the all black X-Box Elite or even the Resident Evil console. The X-Box 360 Controller & Charger retails for $69.99 at GameStop. Looks kinda spider-like.

Xbox 360 802.11n adapter spotted in Gears of War 2 boxWe’ve been waiting for this one for some time now. An 802.11n adapter for our Xbox 360. It cleared the FCC and has now appeared on a flyer inside a Gears of War 2 Game of the Year edition box in Italy.

The guys at Joystiq think that this might indicate that both the original 802.11a/b/g and 802.11n adapter might co-existence in the same market, and who knows, maybe a price cut for the expensive original. All we can do is wait and see.

Xbox 360 the only console to stream Netflix

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on August 11th, 2009

Xbox 360 the only console to stream NetflixSorry PS3 and Wii, no Netflix streaming for you. Today we learn that Netflix streaming won’t land on Sony’s PlayStation 3 or Nintendo’s Wii (Not counting PlayOn). Ever. How do we know? Because at the bottom of Microsoft’s details on today’s Xbox LIVE update, it now states that Netflix Watch Instantly integration is now an “exclusive partnership,” with Microsoft.

It even says that the “Xbox 360 will be the only game console to offer this movie-watching experience, available to Xbox LIVE Gold members who are also Netflix unlimited plan subscribers.” Who knew that the Microsoft guys had the foresight to lock things down so quickly? Netflix could still find it’s way to other consoles in some form, but this sounds pretty definitive to us.

Xbox 360 line to be reduced to Arcade and Elite?Some leaked packaging images suggest that only two models of the Xbox 360 will be available in the future. Depicted in the above photo are current and planned boxes for the 360 Arcade; the latter box lists only one other 360, the 120GB Elite.

The Pro, in production since 2005, is MIA. It’s typically the best-selling Xbox system. The photo backs up earlier reports that Microsoft is phasing out the Pro. Game bundles may help clear out earlier stock, after which the Elite’s price is expected fall to that of the Pro in September.

Xbox 360 Lara Croft caseI know, you can never have too much Lara Croft right? And since I haven’t heard of a new Tomb Raider game on the horizon, I’m sure you Lara Croft fans would love to get your hands on this Lara Croft themed Xbox 360 case.

This mod sports 43,000 colorful crystals and is sadly only available in Germany. You’ll need to raid your bank to come up with the $11,000 necessary to get your hands on this one. Yeah, I hear ya. Maybe if it showed more of her body it would be worth it, right? Seriously, stop wearing out your DVD version by pausing it on the action scenes, hoping to get a glimpse of Angelina Jolie’s nipples. You can’t afford this.
